2019 LWHS Graduation Ceremony Commencement Video

Last Year's 2019 Video Update:  Alaska Airline Arena provides families access to a professionally recorded video of our graduation ceremony, available for viewing and downloading for one month after the wrap up of the ceremony.

Unfortunately, LWHS does not have a copy from the Class of 2019 – we are working with PTSA to investigate whether any families downloaded the recording and would be willing to share with our school as a resource.

Starting in 2020, we will begin downloading a copy for our own records and for the resource of our graduates’ families.
